Residential Solar on Long Island

Why Now is the Best Time to Go Solar

You may know just how great solar power is for your home, but the problem is that you keep putting it off. The fact is, now is the best time to go solar on Long Island and in New York City. There are a wide variety of reasons why there is no time like the present to invest in residential solar. Let’s go into further detail about why you should not let this opportunity pass you by.

So you’re wondering “why go solar now?”

The reason now is the best time to go solar is because there are so many benefits to take advantage of. First of all, the quicker you go solar, the sooner you can start paying less on your energy. You are also able to be better prepared with solar and a backup system in case there are any future disastrous storms coming up that may take out the electricity.




The government, NY State, and utility companies are offering attractive rebate programs and tax incentives that really makes it worth going solar now.

Right now is the best time to take advantage of the amazing tax credits and utility rebates that are available. They won’t last forever. For example, in April 2016, the Long Island solar rebate program expired and ran out of funding. The government is encouraging New York homeowners to invest in renewable energy, which means that they are handing out nice tax credits for those people who are willing to make that investment.

New York State tax credits can save you up to 25 percent if you get a solar panel system installed, and if you own your solar panel system, you can save up to 47.5 percent.

The electric rates have been going up and up, and it’s not going to stop. Now you can make it stop with solar panels and lock in low rates for years to come.

Solar is giving the power back to the people and now we have a choice to say no to the ridiculous constant increasing of electric rates in the area. If you went solar you can literally lock in a low electric rate for years and years to come. Often solar panels can bring the bill down to $0 or very little every month. Let’s not forget producing an average of 80 percent to more than 100 percent of the electricity you consume or greater. That means a ZERO electric bill. How amazing is that?! The total percentage of production of electricity your solar panel system produces depends on your installation, available roof space, amount of sunlight, and budget for your unique situation.
